Nissan Maintenance in the Round Rock Area
Perchance your new or new-to-you Nissan vehicle may be tricked out with first-rate amenities, all vehicles continue to need regular maintenance to maintain them in their best condition. Of course the best kind of maintenance is the regularly scheduled kind. Conversely when minor issues go undiagnosed, they can lead to larger issues in the future. Knowing the right solution for your car can take an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions we get about Nissan maintenance in the Round Rock area.
Nissan Engine & Ignition System
Why won't my Nissan start?
Although there may be various reasons why your Nissan won't start, one likely possibility is the battery. If you somehow managed to leave your lights on, then its likely that the charge is drained. One sign of a low charge is if it takes a moment to start when you turn the key. Of course, there may be other reasons why your car or truck won't start, so it's always best to consult a certified Nissan mechanic.
Nissan Fuel Filter
When do I replace my car's fuel filter?
A clean fuel filter ensures optimal and trouble-free engine performance. Always consult your Nissan mechanic or automakers' manual, but fuel filters usually last between 20,000-40,000 miles.
Nissan Brake Pad Replacement - Round Rock
How long will my brake pads last?
The working life of a brake pad relies upon your daily driving routine and especially, the operating environment. Based upon heavy to moderate usage, brake pads are usually designed to last through twenty to twenty-five thousand miles. Factors that can significantly reduce its life are braking frequently, high-speed braking, elevated temperatures and driving on rocky terrain and uneven areas. On average, brake pads may provide from forty to sixty thousand miles of pad life in normal driving conditions.
The Check Engine Light
Why is my check engine light on?
Computerized dashboards are standard featuresin most modern cars and trucks. These include sensors and indicators to help drivers manage vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light has come on include missing gas cap, time for an oil change, or even low tire pressure. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easily read by a diagnostic machine.
Nissan Tire Rotation
When should I get a tire rotation?
A car's sole point of contact with the pavement is the tires. Because of this constant pressure, periodic rotation of the tires is required to best distribute the wear and tear. After 6,000 to 8,000 miles, a tire rotation is advised. Rotation ensures that the tires will wear evenly. Note, as well, that off-roading and 4WD, as well as personal driving habits may dramatically influence your tire rotation frequency and interval, outside of a normal Nissan tire rotation schedule.
Nissan Oil Change
How long between oil changes?
While auto specialists swear by the 3,000-7,000 mile or 3 month oil-change rule, there are always exceptions. The first suggestion is to check your car's user manual. This will give you the most precise answer, especially for new models. Unfortunately, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to vehicle wear, history, and age. This more complete recommendation requires an expert's eye. If your mechanic is unsure, then call your Nissan dealer for the best advice.
Nissan Battery Replacement
What kind of preventive maintenance is necessary for my auto battery?
The average car battery lasts between 3 to 5 years, depending on use and care. The best way to avoid a battery issue is monitor your vehicle's battery health. This typically happens during a routine service check. Most car batteries, like other perishable items, have date of expiration clearly marked.

Be sure to have squeaky brakes looked at by a professional, as it can be a symptom of a more significant problem.
